Social Social Spaces in Struggle brought together panelists with a wide variety of backgrounds to discuss the function of social spaces in a revolutionary project. The panelists drew on their experience with worker-owned co-ops, squats, cultural centers, and infoshops in order clarify some of the limitations of these structures and discuss the potential for deeper interventions. Each panelist was ti reflect on these challenges and to bring a strategy for how the limits of social space are overcome in order to propose techniques that make our spaces into positions.
